- Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible
The Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible enlists leading theologians to read and interpret scripture creedally for the twenty-first century, just as the church fathers, the Reformers, and other orthodox Christians did for their times and places. Psalms 101-150, like each commentary in the series, is designed to serve the church and to demonstrate the continuing intellectual and practical viability of theological interpretation of the Bible.
Praise for Psalms 101-150 in the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible
"In his earlier writing Jason Byassee has indicated a readiness and capacity to read the Psalms with a christological tilt after the manner of Augustine. Here he carries out that interpretation with verve and with imaginative freedom. His commentary serves well in the Brazos series and will be a ready and compelling resource for the church in its thinking, singing, praying, and preaching."
--Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary
"Byassee reads the Psalms like a pastor, which means he reads the Psalms with God's life and love for the creature fully in view. You will not find many commentaries on this section of the Psalms that match Jason's theological sophistication, ministerial wisdom, and intellectual courage."
--Willie James Jennings, Yale Divinity School
"Byassee's readings of Psalms 101-150 reap the benefit of his roles as preacher, theological teacher, and close reader of the Bible. Embracing both modern scholarship and traditional interpretive approaches of the fathers and medieval readers, he does not limit his reading to a single sense, but invites us to hear the voice of the living Christ in the Psalms."
